Broadwell to provide marginally better performance than Haswell

Broadwell to provide marginally better performance than Haswell

Intel’s plans for the CPU market have been clear for months – the current 22 nm Haswell generation will soon be replaced by 14 nm Broadwell chips that will feature the same architecture but much lower power consumption. A question remains, though – will Broadwell be faster than Haswell and if yes, then by how much?

Now the answer to this question has been given – according to Intel thanks to some architectural tweaks here and there and the new 14 nm production process Broadwell will be about 5-7 per cent faster than Haswell at the same clock speed. Unfortunately we will not see any “hard” benchmark results for another 7-8 months and this has prompted some Swedish enthusiasts from the Sweclockers web site to conduct tests on their own. Given there are no desktop Broadwell chips the people at Sweclockers have compared the Core M 5Y70 Broadwell processor and the Intel Core i5-4200U Haswell processor.

As you can see from the results the average difference between Broadwell and Haswell is not bigger than 3 percent in favor of the former. While this is disappointing the new 14 nm tech process will bring much lower power consumption, better overclocking margins and a reason for Haswell users not to upgrade if they are not looking for better power efficiency. Well, having your wallet full is not that bad at all, is it?
